Women ‘Need To Approach Fat Loss Differently To Men’

If you’ve spent any time working on your figure and trying to lose fat, you’ll probably have realised that not all the tips you come across work as well for women as they do for men. It’s no surprise why: because men and women’s physiology is different.

An article for Muscle and Fitness recently pointed out that if you want to lose some body fat, you could learn a lot from female bodybuilders, who it described as “the most effective dieters on the planet”.

There are certain fundamentals that you need to have in place regardless of your overall body goals or your current level of fitness. These are your body composition, your caloric balance, your exercise and your nutrition.

As the news provider noted, the most effective strategies for losing fat involve altering your food intake to be in negative caloric balance without becoming nutrient deficient, while doing more exercise to expend more calories.

However, women also need to allow for the fact that they typically carry more water weight and fat cells than men, and more of our fat and water weight will be below our waist compared to men.

In addition, we have hormone changes to contend with too, with the article noting that higher estrogen levels when we’re younger can make it more challenging to lose body fat than when we’re older and our estrogen levels drop.

As we recently explained, if you want to achieve your fitness or weight loss goals, you need to ensure your training schedule matches your aims. In general, you should train at least three times a week if you want to progress beyond a low level of fitness.

How To Become A Fitness Model

When you begin your fitness journey, your motivation may well be to tone up and lose weight, but after a few months and after you’ve achieved these goals, you will likely find that your motivation to continue hitting the gym changes completely.

Once you realise what your body is physically capable of, you want to push yourself even harder to see what else you can do, to find out just what is achievable… feeling strong really is incredible and you won’t know how good it feels until you’ve reached that point.

If this sounds familiar and you think you’re well on your way, you may want to consider how to become a fitness model, something that is becoming increasingly popular – and a great way to make a living.

It’s important to understand what kind of body type you have so you can make sure you’re targeting the right market when it comes to this kind of modelling, so bear this in mind when putting your portfolio together.

Because your body will be your biggest asset, you need to make sure that you have a solid training regime in place, as well as following a healthy diet plan and sticking to it so you don’t find yourself reaching for unhealthy treats and snacks. Models are always on the go, so meal prepping can really help where this is concerned.

Looking healthy is an absolute must and this extends to your skin, teeth and hair, as well as your body, so if you have bad habits like smoking or if you drink too much alcohol, it might be time to review your lifestyle and make a few positive changes.
